Walk the Walk: Mary Katrantzou x Adidas Originals Collection

Earlier this year, Adidas Originals announced Mary Katrantzou would be the next designer to create a capsule collection for this brand. As a fan of her works, I was so excited when I first heard the news, and recently, Adidas Originals finally released the look book photos.

As you know, Mary Katrantzou is famous for her prints, so this element plays a major role in this capsule collection. The pieces are very colorful with great abstract prints, and the silhouettes are true to the original Mary Katrantzou line. Overall, the collection is very sporty and glamourous.

The capsule collection will be available at selected Adidas stores in November 2014.

Giveaway: TRISTAN Socks & Gift Card

Socks are by far my favourite part of my wardrobe. The highlight of getting dressed in the morning for me is opening my sock drawer, (oh who am I kidding, I have two drawers,) and choosing which socks I will rock for the day. I freely admit I have a sock addiction like no other. I of course was happy to hear that TRISTAN is just as excited about socks as I am.

TRISTAN travelled across the country to talk with 200 men who love socks and to find out what is so special about them. The result was the Canadian TRSITAN INDEX, which includes fun to watch videos of Canadian men talking socks. Take a look and you will soon discover Canadian men truly love their socks.

Taking what they learned from their cross country sock expedition, TRISTAN assembled their SOCK SAVY GUIDE, a creative and informative guide on how to do the sock thing right. (I am currently printing and binding my copy for bedtime reading.) The guide includes their Style Statement, Colour and Pattern 101, A sock for every occasion, 10 mistakes to avoid at all costs, and my favourite part - Tell me which socks you wear and I'll tell you where you come from.

This season TRISTAN has 20 must have styles for all you sock lovers and my favourites are pictured below. To celebrate the release of TRISTAN's sock collection Fusion of Effects is giving away 6 fab pairs and a $50 TRISTAN gift card!

Walk the Walk: Matthew Gallagher S/S 2015 Collection

Last week Maison Matthew Gallagher presented an incredible line up at World MasterCard Fashion Week. Each ensemble looked to have been designed to do one thing and one thing only - to make the woman wearing it feel incredibly special.

His creations floated down the runway to a fun playful compilation of european lounge melodies as the audience sat in awe with their cameras snapping away. The collection catered to a range of women who all shared one thing in common, the desire to look and feel like the most wonderful girl in any room. The silhouettes shown in charcoals, pinks, blues and whites were flattering, feminine and sophisticated.

- Loving the architectural fold detail shown in two of the skirts. Makes a great statement.
- Various hem line lengths cater to a range of women allowing anyone to find the perfect look. 
- Brilliant combination of light soft silky fabrics and colours with the textured charcoal.
- Pockets on the pink skirt illustrate Gallagher's thoughtful design.

Eye Candy:
- Full length skirt with architectural folds 
- Ultra feminine chiffon 3-tiered blue party dress
- Blue and white single centre strap dress
- Long sleeve solid white feathery dress
